In the UK climate about 10 days, your winters about 5 days.
The ONLY fuse that should have any drain with the ignition off is at H1/1.

H1/1. Is that the power wire to the remote start? If so it is the only one pulling 20mA

All the wiring looks good. Checking on that grounded neutral safety switch connection. Not sure if that is right.

That's all as expected then. I did say H1/1 as the only way to test it.
The other constant feeds on H/3 should only draw once the R/S is activated.
I think you mean H2/2 BLACK/ white and yes it should be grounded if an auto, otherwise connect it to the reverse light feed. If it doesn't see a ground it won't start.

I have a 560XV not 570XV. So I think connections might be different.

OK I will ground the BLACK/ white neutral safety again and fix them to a better ground. I will tie all three grounds to a higher gauge black wire and bolt it to a proper point.
Your right about that self tapping screw. One turn and it came right off. Wasn't screwed in well at all.

There was a never a 570XV, there was a 500 and a 460 and 480 though in the UK.

Hi all. I realize I never did follow up on this. I never let anyone know how it went or what I found out with my trucks parasitic drain.
I just wanted to update since last year that I got a new battery a couple of months ago (Duracell AGM). It works well but I am concerned it will get run down just like the last ACDelco battery and start to sulfate. It will get cold soon and I want to solve this once and for all.
